Carole Sydnor serves as an International Ministries missionary for Nepal mission by maintaining the partner relationship of IM with three primary organizations: the Nepal Baptist Church Council, Human Development and Community Services and the United Mission to Nepal. Her ministry gives special attention to being directly involved with relief efforts in the aftermath of the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal. She also continues to promote IM special projects and provides assistance with filling personnel needs through full-time service placement. Carole dedicates 20% of her time to this missionary service non-residentially. She carries out her duties through correspondence and at least two visits to Nepal each year. Both Nepali and English languages are used in her ministry. Here’s part of Carol’s message to us:
“The one-year anniversary of my arrival in Nepal, the day of the second earthquake, May 12, causes me to reflect on the events that have happened there this past year as I hold Nepal close to my heart. In that reflection the words of Isaiah 40:31 come to my mind:
but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.
“I have seen the reality of these words in the lives of International Ministries’ partners: the staff at Human Development and Community Services (HDCS) and Asha Bal Bikash Sewa (ABBS), the center for children living with disabilities; Multipurpose Community Development Services (MCDS), the social welfare arm of the Nepal Baptist Church Council (NBCC); and the United Mission to Nepal (UMN).”

Please pray for Carole as she ministers with the people of Nepal. May we all “mount up with wings like eagles” in support of our missionaries. Thanks!
